Connor Garvey will make his Grassroots Concerts debut at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, in the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar in Nisswa.

Garvey is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Portland, Maine, with the amiable presence of an entertainer, the lyrical depth of a poet and the enchantment of a storyteller.

Garvey's interest in music and writing began at a young age. His parents are educators and his father was a songwriter. Growing up in such a musical environment, Garvey developed the firm belief that songwriting is a method for bringing community together and a way for people to explore a greater depth within their own lives.

A combination of songwriting and performance strength has earned Garvey numerous awards, including being named winner of the Kerrville New Folk, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, SolarFest, Wildflower Art and Music Festival and Maine Songwriters Association songwriting competitions, voted as Most Wanted artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, nominated for Best Male Performer in the New England Music Awards, and a top new singer songwriter by Sirius XM's The Coffeehouse.
